A Place For Emerging and Established Writers To Publish Their Work         ISSN 1554-8449
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR:
Muscadine Lines was a labor of love for eight years. MLASJ published the works of 361 writers in 38 states, some highly acclaimed - Pushcart winners and nominees and those widely published, as well as some published for the first time. MLASJ published an excerpt from Doug Marlette's second novel, a story by nationally known columnist Paula Wall, stories of university professors, teachers and jounalists, stories by writers who are now deceased ... stories by people who had stories to tell. MLASJ went live two days after the unexpected death of my husband and never missed a beat for the following three years after LIFE changed. Alas, a labor of love ceases to exist when "real work" takes priority for the sake of survival. Thank you for reading over the years and please continue to enjoy the stories in our Archives for now! Thanks to all MLASJ writers!

Lines: A Southern Journal
Those joyful little grape morsels about the size of a hog's eye grew abundant on my grandparents' farm in Mississippi. When I was a little girl, I rode Dixie, the old mare, bareback down a red dirt lane to a vine that grew wild and high. I plucked muscadines right off that vine, popped them into my mouth, and ate them warmed by the August sun. There's nothing sweeter.
These days, again and again, I hear frustration in the voices of new writers trying to get their work published. They're anxious to see it in print; they want people to read it; they desire feedback. Yet the market is tight, and it's hard to get a foot in the door.
An online magazine is a perfect venue for putting a writer's work out there. And there's nothing sweeter to writers than seeing their work in printfirst time, every time.
GIVE IT A TRY!
